 Public Works Projects

The Public Works Department has an extremely busy construction season scheduled this summer.  As with any street or utility construction, there may be delays or closures in the area.  Please be patient, use caution and pay close attention to flaggers and other construction workers.  Safety of both the workers and the travelling public is of utmost importance in all of our work zones.  Below is a brief synopsis of each project.  If you have any questions about any of the projects, please contact the Public Works Department at 541-492-6730.

TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS

HWY 138 Corridor Solutions & Transportation Enhancement Project:
The City and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) have been working together for several years to facilitate a project to make significant improvements on Highway 138E in Downtown Roseburg.  ODOT has designed and bid the project and it is currently under construction.  The project limits start on Harvard Avenue near the high school and head east encompassing Washington and Oak from Harvard to Stephens Street, Stephens and Pine Streets from Oak to Diamond Lake Boulevard, Diamond Lake Boulevard from Stephens to Fowler Street, Spruce Street from Oak to Douglas and Douglas Avenue from Spruce to Stephens.    For more information please visit the project website at:  www.Roseburg138.com

2016 Pavement Rehabilitation Project:
As part of this year's pavement management program, the City will be contracting for pavement  rehabilitation which consists of removal of 2"-4" of existing asphalt surface and replacement with new asphalt between 2"-4" in depth The following streets are scheduled for pavement rehab later this summer.

Spruce / Parrott / Cass Streets Improvements:
Work has started on this project to reconstruct and improve these three streets.  Spruce Street will be widened and improved from Oak Avenue to Mosher Street.  The new street will include sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides and parking on one side.  Parrott Street will be improved from Oak Avenue to Lane Street.  The street will be reconstructed at the existing width with new sidewalks on both sides.  The intersection at Parrott, Spruce, and Lane will be realigned to that Parrott will tee into Spruce.  This is being accomplished to encourage traffic to use Spruce Street instead of Parrott and allow Parrott to serve the residential traffic without the commercial and industrial traffic that has been using it.  Cass Street will be improved to include sidewalks on both sides.  All of the streets will include new underground utilities (sanitary, storm, and water) as needed.  Construction is expected to be complete this fall.

STORM DRANAGE PROJECTS

Fairmount/Garden Valley Improvements:
This project will upgrade storm drainage along Fairmount Street north of Garden Valley Boulevard.  The new storm system will be constructed in the street, replacing the existing system that runs through back yards and improving the overall capacity of the system in this area.  The project will include a new storm line across Garden Valley Boulevard, which will be accomplished utilizing night work to limit the inconvenience to the traveling public. 

Harvard Repairs:
In December 2015, staff discovered that the flow line of the existing 48-inch storm line in Harvard south of Lookingglass Street was failing.  This failure was causing sink holes to form along the south edge of Harvard Avenue.  An emergency project was constructed to replace approximately 250 feet of the worst pipe.  This project will replace or repair the remaining sections of the aluminized steel pipe.

Cascade Court Storm Improvements:
The City is currently working with a local engineer to design a new storm drainage system to collect storm drainage on Cascade Court.  The current piping is shared with a private sanitary sewer system.  The intent is to install a new storm pipe to separate the drainage from the sanitary system. 

URBAN RENEWAL PROJECTS

Deer Creek Path / Improvements:
The intent of this project is to beautify the gravel area where the City purchased and removed some dilapidated buildings on Jackson Street adjacent to Deer Creek.  The project will also provide a connection from Jackson Street to the path that runs north of the Public Safety Center to Stephens Street.  The project has been designed by City staff and will be bid in the near future. 

Downtown Parking Structure Improvements:
This project will address both aesthetic and safety/security issues associated with the Parking Structure in Downtown.  This is a valuable asset that is currently underutilized due to a perceived safety issue within the garage.  It is also a landmark structure near the entrance to the Downtown, which could be greatly improved aesthetically.  Construction is expected to begin soon.

Spruce/Parrott Street Improvements:
Work has started on this project to reconstruct and improve these three streets.  Spruce Street will be widened and improved from Oak Avenue to Mosher Street.  The new street will include sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides and parking on one side.  Parrott Street will be improved from Oak Avenue to Lane Street.  The street will be reconstructed at the existing width with new sidewalks on both sides.  The intersection at Parrott, Spruce, and Lane will be realigned to that Parrott will tee into Spruce.  This is being accomplished to encourage traffic to use Spruce Street instead of Parrott and allow Parrott to serve the residential traffic without the commercial and industrial traffic that has been using it.  Cass Street will be improved to include sidewalks on both sides.  All of the streets will include new underground utilities (sanitary, storm, and water) as needed.  Construction is expected to be complete this fall.

Traffic Signal Upgrades:
The City has hired an engineering consultant to evaluate the traffic signals on Garden Valley, Stewart Parkway, Edenbower, and Stephens.  The intent is to complete the intertie of the signals in each of these corridors and make any necessary upgrades to ensure the signals are working as efficiently as possible. 

WATER PROJECTS

River Shoaling:
The City is currently awaiting permits to removed a large gravel bar that has formed over the years in front of the water treatment plant intake.  The intake is where the City draws the raw water from the North Umpqua River.  This project is vitally important to protect the intake and ensure that it remains clear.   

Telemetry Upgrades:
The telemetry system is the means by which the operators at the Water Treatment Plant can monitor and control pump stations and reservoir levels throughout the water system.  The City's system is past its useful life and the City hired a consultant to evaluate the system and make recommendations for future upgrades.  The study is complete and upgrades to this system will occur over the next four years, with the first phase currently in design.

Main Reservoir Piping Improvements:
This project will upgrade existing deteriorated piping as well as provide redundancy in this critical part of the water system. 

Pioneer Way Main Replacement:
This project will upgrade and replace approximately 560 lineal feet of undersized 2-inch water main with new 8-inch water main.  Located before the private gate at the end of the County maintained road, this portion of the water main serves 8 residences.  In addition, a fire hydrant will be installed.

Sunshine Road Main Replacement:
This project will upgrade and replace approximately 1,200 lineal feet of 6-inch water main with new 8-inch water main on Sunshine Road between Sunshine Park and Wild Iris Lane.  This section of water main has experienced several water main leaks in recent years and needs to be replaced.  In addition, fire hydrants will be installed.

Hooker Road Intertie:
The purpose of this project is to remove and replace an existing transmission main inter-tie that connects the City's 20-inch transmission main and the City's 30-inch transmission main.  The inter-tie, which is located near the intersection of Hooker Road and NE Stephens Street was built in 1965 and is beginning to show signs of leakage and needs to either be removed or replaced.

UPCOMING PROJECTS
The following projects are in various stages of design for construction later this year or next.

Stewart Parkway - Valley View to Harvey Court:
The City is currently in a process to select a consultant to completer the design on this project to widen Stewart Parkway, add bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and provide flood mitigation for Newton Creek.  The project will involve widening and realigning Stewart Parkway, to reduce the severity of the curves and to provide additional space for storm water detention during storm events.  The project will include the construction of sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides of this arterial street.
